Problem Second Program is not Running when Logged Out

Recommended Posts


I need a programmable countdown timer that I can cancel if I need to, so the only thing I could come up with is to compile a second program and activate it via Run(). I use a ProcessExists()...ProcessClose() to kill it early.

The second program works fine when logged in the computer and application used is visible and has focus. When the running account is logged out, the second program only loads and unloads--it doesn't execute.

I can look next to the user name for account and see the number of programs running increases by 1 when the timer program is started. Also, I can see the number decrease when it ends or I kill it.

Anyone got ideas for this problem?
